Erin Ventures, Uniper, BASF - How business continues to grow outside Germany

  • boron
  • chemicals

Old hands in the market like BASF are in a strong transformation process. Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine has put the energy supply from gas on the line. But global players like the Ludwigshafen-based company already have a plan B, to the delight of shareholders. The situation is very different at Uniper AG. Here, the great dependence on Russian gas supplies and the expensive world market contracts that the Company had to conclude brought Germany's largest gas supplier to the brink of bankruptcy in recent weeks. The German government is spending EUR 15 billion to keep the Company afloat. At the taxpayer's expense. Erin Ventures shows where it is really worth investing now with the Element Boron.

The first half of the current stock market year brought heavy losses due to political and economic uncertainties. For the leading American index, the S&P 500, this led to the most significant price correction since the 1970s. In Germany, the DAX 40 lost around 20% of its value. Investors are now eagerly awaiting the second quarter results. In addition to Deutsche Bank, carmaker Mercedes-Benz also posted surprisingly good results. The chemical company BASF is also more confident despite the existing gas crisis.

Crash stocks: BASF, Meta Materials, Uniper, Nordex - Will there be a comeback like Tesla?

In stock market corrections that come from the interest rate and inflation side, when the relationship between inflation and capital market returns normalizes is critical. In the long NASDAQ upswing from 2019 to 2021, valuations doubled as future cash flows were extrapolated down to present value with minimal interest rates. That let potential market caps explode, and leveraged positions could also be taken at virtually no cost. Currently, the market is showing a different side. Negative real interest rates, high refinancing costs and increased margin calls are weighing on investors' minds. Some stocks experienced a real crash - will they bounce back soon like Tesla?

BASF, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Stock pickers, beware!

  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • chemicals

Shares of Nel ASA, BP, BASF and Saturn Oil + Gas: Goldman bullish on oil price

  • greenhydrogen

Good news for oil producers such as BP, ExxonMobil and Saturn Oil & Gas: Goldman Sachs has raised its oil price forecasts and expects prices to remain high. The price target for Brent crude was raised from USD 125 to USD 140 per barrel. The reasons given for this are unresolved structural bottlenecks. The oil giant ExxonMobil shot up to a new all-time high in the wake of the news. For Saturn Oil & Gas, a takeover has come at the right time. The Canadian producer wants to double its production again. Nel is also likely to benefit, as the high prices for fossil energies are making it easier to switch to renewables. For BASF, however, the Goldman forecast is bad news, but analysts see considerable upside potential.
